George Gee and SWING46 Jazz & Supper Club Combination as Strong as Ever!

 

Some of the musicians and myself were outside of Time Square’s SWING46 Jazz & Supper Club during a break last Tuesday night shutting the breeze and absorbing the scene.  The conversation steered from how hard the band was swinging’ to how lucky we were to have a home base every Tuesday evening at the world’s ONLY  7- nights – a week swing dance night club and almost as special – the fact that it’s literally located at the entertainment crossroads of the world (yes, the WORLD!)!  Since it opened in 1997 (17 years ago), The George Gee Swing orchestra has been a mainstay on it’s music schedule, drawing locals, tourists and international lindy hoppers from all over the universe!  Quite a Broadway run, if we do say so ourselves!  #SwingMakesYouHappy  #Swing46MakesYouHappy  Come on down and see what all the  fuss is all about, even country superstar Reba McEntire and Bill Nye The Science Guy knows the scoop on the weekly Tuesday George Gee Swingin’ Big Band Dance party!

Welcome to the NEW World of www.GeorgeGee.com !

After 33 years of being a professional big bandleader, 23 here in my hometown of NYC and 13 years into the new millennium – I am happy to report the launch of the NEW www.GeorgeGee.com!  A true representation of the current George Gee Orchestra, with nods towards the current stellar line-up of talent and personality, with a clear vision of its forward path.  A journey well-rooted in the musical and philosophical achievements of the past masters, but also a recognition of the band’s already established history of over three decades.  It HAS taken over three decades plus to surround myself with like-minded individuals in this pursuit of preserving this great American art form of the Big Band, but also with an eye towards evolution.  I am immensely proud of The George Gee Orchestra and humbly its place in musical history – there are many stories to be shared and told.  And still many to develop and to continue…..

 

I would like to acknowledge the tireless efforts of the group that helped develop this new site, all longtime friends and supporters of The George Gee Orchestra.  Lovingly self-titled TEAM GEE, they include Project Manager/Social Media Coordinator Jennifer Gapay, Copy Editor Amy Winn and programmer Tommy Sunshine.  TEAM GEE took my initial scrambled vision and molded it into a clear portal, that happily and properly represents The George Gee Orchestra of now.  And in the whole scheme of things, the timing of the launch is perfect – as a whole slate of announcements are scheduled for the very immediate future.  Stay tuned:  Have blog, will travel!
